For some years now, we have been planning to put a new surface layer of asphalt in the parking spaces and driveways on the premises of the shrine. The existing asphalt concrete pavements need to be replaced, since they are seriously cracked, falling apart, and potholed. We believe repairing them will serve the entire community of pilgrims visiting the shrine. However, the cost of this venture exceeded our financial possibilities and this investment was postponed from year to year. This year, we found a contractor who can do this work at a very favorable price for us ($ 180,000). Unlike other parishes, Our Lady of Częstochowa Shrine, which is run by a religious order, cannot hope for federal, state or diocesan support.
Therefore, as always, we turn to you with a heartfelt appeal for your generous support, which we promise to reciprocate with our daily Salvatorian prayer for all of you to Our Lady of Częstochowa. We shall also be offering a Holy Mass for all our Benefactors.
